If i wanted you to stay i would have chiselled my name into your heart
If i wanted you to breath i would have hung up  your lungs like art
the sun doesn't get to decide when it turns the lights out
and the clouds never get to choose who they're mourning about

When all you love has slipped away
you'll feel me in the wind
I am the grass beneath your feet
and the dandelions in spring

If i wanted you to care i would have never said the things i did
search for answers if you dare but you know life can't consist of simple things
pull of the strings one by one 'till they're standing alone
while they crumble under fear they'll spend their life waiting by the phone

Throw your hopes and dreams aside
you've amounted to nothing
we all hope the pain subsides
but our hope begins to thin

The curtains, always drawn

The curtains, always drawn
From the inside
Yours are the thickest black velvet
Yet my curtains are open
Forever, always
Made of dainty lace
I can't see inside your eyes
But you can see in mine

These curtains can see, feel and hear all

Like eyes of flies hiding on walls
These curtains can see, feel and hear all
They are constant observers
Of a world in and out

So watch it
We're watching you

This one's for the girl
with her hands over her
face
and might I say,
they are darling.
Especially because
they are the hands
that place such stunning
words that touch
my heart.
I can only imagine
the beauty
that hides behind
them.

Your eyes are always so crinkled
School must drain you so
Always barely perceiving
They were disheartening with
melancholy in tow
I'll never forget the night I realized
your eyes
No longer creased, no longer apathetic
So round, so alive
In this moment I realized that I
had seen them before
I saw a glimpse today

Maybe it's too much to think that
I made your eyes everything
Everything I needed to be alrite
I kissed your mouth that night
A person like you could be good for me

for Summer (obviously) *broken record*

i want you to scream “SHUT UP!” in the middle of one of my ramblings

anyone?

anyone?

no, no one.

i want you to do it and i want you to slap me and then i want you to kiss me

and i want to be FURIOUS with you

but i want to taste your lips

i’m so far gone and i’m so long lost

and i feel like a million dust particles flying in the drapes of your mothers house

the one that wears the bright pink lipstick you hated as a child

it’s what i’ve always wanted, isn’t it?

to explode.

and surround you in the most literal sense

because that’s the only sense i’m capable of fulfilling.

i am not overwhelming nor am i beautiful.

nor is my voice or my pale, pale skin.

even when it’s torn or taunt

or bitten or blackened

from your anger kisses

and your frustration vacuum

sucking up all of me

all of me

goodbye all of me

he used to wrap himself in his sister’s curtains
they tangled around his legs
and
he
laughed

he couldn’t move with them
couldn’t move at all
but he
liked
that

he liked to get caught
he liked to get trapped
because he
could be
found

as long as he didn’t go anywhere
and he stayed put
there was no
getting
lost

his sister used to find him like that
his face pressed against the window
he looked out
and forgot there was in
she had to pull him back
to her

You tell me to close the curtains.

You tell me to close the curtains.
"Close the curtains so the neighbors won't see!"
But one thought rings out clear in my mind --
The curtains won't change what you're doing to me.

Even if the world's in the dark
About what happens under the cover of night,
It still hurts, it still happens, and it is real.
The situation is desperate for light.

You can try to belittle me -- go right ahead.
But I know something you don't know.
Hit me, hurt me, try to knock me down;
I have nowhere left to go.

I've already hit rock bottom;
I've got nowhere left to fall.
So, close the door behind you --
Because I'm going to tell it all.

my friend asked me what i'm going to do in LA when i get to california. i told her how i am going to wander around aimlessly until i die. she hung the phone up on me. i didn't have the guts to tell her how i plan on doing nothing at all. i plan to sleep outside. i plan to get strung out. i plan to be in a place where i will never have to look at the same face twice in the same day ever again unless i want to. and i don't want to.

She opens her heart
Like a window
For some fresh air

Listens to the winds
And love songs
Chirped from up high

She’s trying to see
What lies on
The other side of her pane

Looking out to the sky
But the sun’s glare
Still impairs her vision
